Storyline

In the small town of Shuckton, Ontario, which has just placed a bid to host the 2028 Summer Olympics, its mayor, Larry Bowman, is found murdered. As the authorities investigate, other townsfolk with a personal history to the deceased mayor conduct their own unofficial investigations to see if they can discover who committed the murder. Life in Shuckton continues under the leadership of the new mayor who has her own agenda, and under the watchful eye of the local news team, who not only have more news to cover than usual but who are dealing with their own internal issues. But as life continues, so does Death, he who has some more names on his list and some old scores to settle. Written by Huggo

Funny Stuff!
20 November 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This show is funny stuff, I love it because it reminded me of the old days when CBC used to care about what kind of programs it was making, like the original Kids in the Hall series. They just don't worry about quality or the audience (our) experience any more, or what they waste our tax dollars on.

This show is about a small Ontario town called Shuckton (all of the town's inhabitants are played by members of the Kids in the Hall sketch troupe and they do a great job like they always did). The mayor is murdered in the first episode which sets up where the rest of the mini-series goes.

A lot of laughs and a decent story, as I said good performances from an older Kids in the Hall troupe. The writing isn't quite up to snuff to where the original series used to be but it's obviously a very different show.

Worth seeing! You can watch it online.
